Thanks for watching! 💙
❗️❗️❗️85% of parrots are either resold, given away, or abandoned within just 2 short years of being purchased. ADOPT DONT SHOP! Rescues are full of these wonderful birds, neglected, abandoned, and thrown out by inexperienced and most uneducated people that didn’t know the kind of work and commitment it takes to have birds. STOP UNNECESSARY BIRD BREEDING FOR PROFIT, and help these magnificent creatures.
If you are unable to adopt then please consider donating to a rescue/sanctuary that volunteers their time to help these animals in need. 💚
I cannot stress enough how heartbreaking this sad truth is…. Too many people impulse buy parrots because of cute or funny traits they’ve seen in other birds. ❗️No two parrots are alike…
A life stuck in a cage is cruel and so unfair to these magnificent beautiful creatures.
They deserve the absolute best!
So if you are interested in a parrot, please research, volunteer at a parrot rescue/sanctuary, KNOW what you’re getting yourself into before you take on the work that comes with loving and homing a parrot.
Parrots are a LIFETIME commitment. They can live up to 80+ years!!
I’ve given up many many things to give my two parrots the best life they can possibly have! (Night out, gone on weekends, vacation time, a clean quiet house, extra money.. Etc.)
But to me it’s all worth it, my parrots are my family and I love them like my children!
Please DO YOUR RESEARCH before adopting.
After all, we have our friends, our jobs, and our hobbies…
They only have us💗❗️❗️
The idea of animal cognition has been debated for centuries. Do animals think, or just react? Are they capable of complex thought and behavior that is not just instinctive? Through her work with African Grey parrots, Dr. Irene Pepperberg, a comparative psychologist, has devoted her entire professional life to investigating these questions.

How to Draw a Parrot
By [http://EzineArticles.com/expert/Annette_Labedzki/252070]Annette Labedzki
Parrots, also known as psittacoses, are considered one of the most intelligent birds, with some of their species being equipped with the ability to imitate human voices. This makes them a popular pet. There are about 372 species of parrots, found around the world and they come under the Order Psittaciformes. The Order is further subdivided into three Families: the Psittacidae (true parrots), the Cacatuidae (Cockatoos), and the Strigopidae (New Zealand parrots). Found in all the tropical and subtropical continents, their diet mostly consists of nuts, fruits, buds, and other plant material, although a few species also eat insects and small animals.
Required tools for drawing:
� Eraser (just in case you don’t get the curves correct)
� Paper or canvas
� Color & paint brush (optional)
Steps for drawing a parrot: Here, we are drawing a parrot facing left, such that the head is to the left and the tail is on the right side of the paper or canvas. With a light hand, roughly sketch the bird so that you can later erase the unwanted lines. Lets begin:
� Head: First, draw a circle of the size of a one-rupee coin for the head. At the outer edge of this circle, draw a shape resembling the bottom part of a horizontal mango projecting out towards left. This forms the upper beak of the parrot. Make the tip of this mango shape sharp to give it a realistic look. Draw the lower beak by making an arc with its curve downwards, extending over three fourth of the length of the upper beak. Its edges should touch the lower part of the upper beak. After outlining the face, we make the eyes of the parrot. Draw two small vertical ovals of the size of a button, positioned towards the left, within the head. Sketch another shaded circle inside each of these eyes to represent the eyeballs.
� Body: Draw a line in the form of a question mark extending from the head of the parrot towards left, such that the lower half of the question mark forms the feather. Make sure the curved portion of the question mark is wide enough to form the body of the parrot. In effect, make the body by fusing the open end of the question mark with the circle-head above.
� Claws: Draw four half-crescent moons joining the body to make it look like it is sitting on the branch of a tree. Sketch 2 parallel lines haphazardly, extending horizontally to form a branch.
� Shading: Erase the unwanted lines. Darken the remaining sketch using a pencil. Enhance the feathers of the parrot by drawing few straight lines over it. You may color the parrot to beautify it. Parrots are found in different colors, the commonest one being green.
